Me and My Beads
Sunday, June 21, 2009
About two weeks ago, my mom and I bought troll bead bracelets. Each month we put money into a bank to save up for something that we would like throughout the course of out diets. My mom read an article on line about non food rewards for yourself during your weight loss. My mom and I decided these bracelets would be the perfect things to do and reward ourselves with. We use the money in the bank to buy the beads. We reward ourselves with one bead each time we loose ten pounds. She has five beads and I have one. She has done a much better job throughout the course of the diet than I have. I would really like to get a second bead. In three weeks, I am moving to a new town where I will be teaching in the fall. I would like to get my second bead before I move. That means I need to loose 5 pounds in three weeks. This is very doable. I need to concentrate on eating healthy and cut back on the snacking. I will get my second bead before I move!!
